Historical and recent viticulture as a source of climatological knowledge in the Czech Republic


The cultivation of vine (Vinis vinifera) that yields grapes for wine manufacture is strongly influenced by the weather. This relationship enables the use of historical viticultural data for the reconstruction of temperatures and weather extremes in past times. This paper summarises the basics of the relationship between viticulture and climate in the Czech Lands. We compile historical vations before AD 1500 and for the 16th-18th centuries from various types of documentary evidence. Times of flowering and grape harvest are compared with temperatures at the Velké Pavlovice station for the period 1956-2007 and 1984-2007, for various grape varieties. - (EN)
